Semi content in electronic systems broke record in 2021

Jan 13, 2022

The value of semiconductor content in electronic systems reached 33.2% last year, surpassing the previous record high set in 2018, says the new 2022 report by IC Insights.

HIC Insights’ chart shows that the semiconductor content figure took a big jump in 2018 and set a new high at 31.1%. However, driven by a 25% increase in semiconductor sales last year, semiconductor content in electronic systems reached 33.2% in 2021, a new all-time high as shown here:

“With global unit shipment growth rates of cellphones, automobiles, and PCs showing maturity and slowing over the past 10 years, the disparity between the 3.5% 2011-2021 CAGR registered in the electronic systems market and 6.5% 2011-2021 CAGR displayed by the semiconductor market is directly due to the increasing content/value of semiconductors in electronic systems,” according to the January Semiconductor Industry Flash Report that IC Insights will release.
